 roadThe changing songs of Blue Whales: "Hildebrand believes the change is tied to the elimination of blue whale hunting. Before hunting was banned in 1966, the numbers of blue whales were dangerously low. 'Worldwide in the early '60s, there probably would have been a few thousand,' he says. Those low numbers meant there were few females available to hear a male's come-hither song. For males in that situation, 'there's a push to have the sound go to higher frequency so that more of the girls can hear it.'"

Armani Exchange Announces Winner of Underwear Model Search



Last night, at an intimate dinner hosted by Armani Exchange and GQ, Ryan Barry was announced as the winner of the nationwide search for the next A/X underwear model. While I served on a consulting panel of judges (which, let me tell you, was a grueling task!), the most influence over the decision was exerted by the results of a public internet polling process.

Here are the three finalists, shot by photographer Matthew Scrivens at Pier 59 in New York this week: Ryan Barry (above), Daniel Lee (below, left) and Michael Bellantuono (below, right).
